I can help you or your child become more proficient in the following subject areas: English, grammar,reading, and the natural sciences (1-8th grades). I've been tutoring/substitute teaching in the Sault Area Schools for the last two years now. I've worked with special needs students and in regular classrooms. I have a reputation for being a patient, caring person who sincerely enjoys seeing people succeed.
Besides experience tutoring in the classroom I also have extensive experience in writing; I've written three books and hundreds of articles. I am constantly updating my knowledge in this area by reading books on grammar and writing. I also do a great deal of editing. It's a subject area I truly love. I am competent to teach in this subject to students in grades 1-12.
My secondary experience and knowledge is in the natural sciences. I'm a horticulturist with an extensive knowledge of soil science. I am competent to teach the natural sciences up through grade 6.
In addition, I have administered the GED test for the State of Michigan. I am familiar with the requirements of this test and believe I am competent to help students prep for the test, including the mathematics portion of the test.
I prefer to work with students, including special needs students, who are motivated, but have difficulty learning in these subject areas.
